While working on My Master’s Degree at New York University, I developed a strong commitment to working with children and teens.
My philosophy of “Let’s Make It work” builds on the strengths of individuals while acknowledging and accepting, but minimizing their weaknesses. I am a trained Cognitive Behavioral therapist with a strong commitment to the overall health of those interested in engaging and making positive change in their lives. In understanding the importance of the “whole” development of a person, I strive to make sur each session is not only person centered but also approached in a holistic manner.

My approach is practical and conversational as we explore together the stressors of daily living, relationship concerns, parenting issues, and in some instances, severe psychiatric disorders. Often, clients seek short-term interventions, though for some difficulties therapy continues for an extended period. I allow my clients to set the agenda for our work together and decide what sort of help is needed.

In the treatment of children and adolescents I do my best to have an immediate, positive impact on children's symptoms and to make the improvement long-lasting for the family as well as the child.
I believe our most troubling attitudes and behavior are meant to protect us from real emotional threats or to help us achieve certain experiences that are vital to our growth. I help clients understand their experiences in the world in terms of these important functions. In dialogue with me clients come to recognize how their most important relationships have shaped the way they think, feel, and act in both desirable and undesirable ways. I strive to help clients discern their authentic needs, desires, and values so they can assert them with conviction in their daily lives.
